It's very frustrating but as time goes by windows Xp actually works slower and slower. Opening big applications such as games or graphic software seems to take forever. And when you have to make a spreadsheet or want to use Word it can literally take minutes to open the programmes. In the next paragraphs I will give you some tips to boost the performance of Windows Xp.
Your computer is loaded with spyware
The first thing I would suggest is to get rid of all spyware that is currently making your computer very slow. People often don't realize it but using the internet can actually harm your computer. Perhaps you may think that you are save because you don't download stuff but this is not always the case. Spyware spies on you and your internet usage. The data goes to advertisers and then you get pop-ups or unwanted emails.
And it gets even worse when you have malware installed. Malware is a form of spyware but more dangerous. Malware steals personal information such as credit card numbers and personal passwords.
So first of all invest in your computer performance by getting a spyware removal programme. Make sure you choose a spyware programme that is capable to remove malware as well.
Repair the windows Xp registry
The second step to a faster windows XP is to repair the registry. The registry is a global database witch contains information about the programmes on your computer. Today there are a lot of programmes on the market who can clean and fix errors in the Microsoft windows registry.
A damaged registry can make windows run slower but it can even be worse. Perhaps you may have paid a computer repair guy a good amount of money because your home pc couldn't start. By scanning the registry from time to time you can overcome this problem.
Fix RunDll errors
Another common way to boost the performances of window xp is to get rid of RunDll errors. This is an essential DLL file in the windows registry that maintenance the speed and efficiently of the computer.
In some cases RunDll errors can be linked to "Windows freezes" and the "Blue screen of death". It is not recommended to repair the RunDll error on your own. Using a registry repair software can help you. However with the dozens of programmes on the market make sure you choose one who does not only repair the registry but can undone the damage as well
